A Little Joy from Down Under

Okay so technically I didn't go "Down Under", but these are pictures of my joyful nephew and my gorgeous sister-in-law is a super cool Auzzie with a lovely accent.  You may remember little Joshie as I welcomed him into the world here, at a few weeks old he was my first attempt at newborn photography here, I adored capturing his big brother and sister here (probably still my favorite shoot ever, shhh...don't tell anyone) and I tried to keep up with him as he keeps growing and was at 5 months here.

Five months later, this neglectful Auntie was able to focus her camera on him once again as the kids and I were enjoying some Otter pops and playtime in their backyard.  I hope you'll enjoy meeting Joshie as he's heading toward the big 1 year mark!


There is a picture from Picture People of his older brother at 1 year old standing just like this one, holding onto mom's fingers.  The similarity in their looks is striking I think, but I still see some subtle differences as well:



All three children sucked their two fingers - no thumbs, no pacis, just those two comforting fingers!



Having fun with mom:




Isn't she just gorgeous??!
